Anyone who has had a foot or ankle injury in the last 12 months and who needs rehabilitation to treat resultant and lingering pain, increase mobility and activity levels, reduce injury causing foot deformity or to return to work or normal daily activities can be treated under the Podiatry ACC contract.
Only the best available materials from NZ's leading Orthotic Laboratory combined with the latest digital 3D scanning equipment and techniques and orthotic milling equipment give ACC patients needing orthotics the most up to date best treatment available.
